DIG­I­TAL MEDIUM FOR­MAT CAM­ERA

NO EL­I­GI­BLE FI­NAL­ISTS THIS YEAR

Camera - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

As noted in the in­tro­duc­tory text, the ab­sence of any can­di­dates in this cat­e­gory is a mat­ter of tim­ing rather than any lack of ac­tiv­ity in the medium for­mat sec­tor. Far from it, it’s busier over­all than it’s ever been. How­ever, Phase One’s next-gen IQ4 cap­ture backs were an­nounced back at the end of Au­gust, but de­liv­er­ies didn’t com­mence un­til Oc­to­ber which ob­vi­ously doesn’t meet our el­i­gi­bil­ity re­quire­ments. Ex­pect this cat­e­gory to be rather more hotly con­tested next year with, in ad­di­tion to IQ4 (es­pe­cially the 150 megapix­els model), Fu­ji­film’s new GFX 50R and 100 megapix­els GFX S model, Le­ica’s S3 – and what­ever Has­sel­blad may be cook­ing up right now. Can’t wait.
